The present article offers the first edition of the Prologue of the anonymous Lectura cum questionibus in Ethicam Nouam et Veterem previously attributed to the Franciscan theologian John Peckham. The commentary was probably written by a Parisian Arts Master around 1240-1244. In the Prologue, the commentator determines the subject of moral philosophy and employing his theory of transcendentals inquires into the conditions that make ethics as a science possible.
